InsynQ Company Profile

  Hosting Software in the Cloud Since 1997  








Founded in 1997

Our team at InsynQ began hosting applications and data in the cloud in 1997, making us an industry leader in software hosting services. Cloud hosting services were founded on the idea that professionals needed to be able to access their files and data from a familiar environment with full functionality no matter where they were geographically located at all times. Lugging expensive hardware and continually syncing data between home and office was a cumbersome method of doing business, thus we began building a cloud hosting infrastructure.

As industry leaders ahead of our time, we were forced to build out our own data centers and create our own routers and thin client devices to facilitate this process. This expertise and knowledge has assisted in our company's growth over the years as we've blossomed into one of the leading software hosting provides in North America. With data centers located in the United States and Canada, InsynQ now has the power and ability to host any application your business desires.

An Extensive & Still-Growing Application Hosting Library

InsynQ currently hosts well over 300 applications in the cloud. These applications work together on users' virtual desktops making business offices completely mobile, agile, and more cost effective. Many businesses come to us with particular software suites or self-built solutions that aren't currently available in our cloud platform. InsynQ's highly skilled team of engineers is happy to test, deploy, and make available any particular application that your company desires for cloud hosting.
